I've had the opportunity to work with 2000 Feet, Inc. for the past 10 years. It has been a rewarding experience for me, to see the smiles on the faces of the children receiving brand new shoes, that they pick out of the local shoe stores.

Some children 2000 Feet, Inc. have served, walked around with holes in the only pair of shoes they have. Thank God 2000 Feet, Inc. step in on time to make a difference in their lives.

I love it!

I had the wonderful experience of volunteering for a shoe fitting and saw the excitment on the children's faces as they picked out their new shoes. 2000 Feet , Inc., allow the parents to erase one of their concerns by having properly fitted shoes for their children. Children are faced with so many challenges today, social and economic, 2000 Feet, Inc., helps erase some of the stigma they may feel by not having the economic means to purchase shoes for the new school year. Who would not like a pair of shoes that fits well so you can run and play and keep your feet dry and not be constantly reminded that your toes are cramped or that your feet are wet because you have holes in your shoes.

The reason I am a donor is I can see the difference my contribution can make and how dedicated 2000 Feet, Inc., is to the local communities as well as areas that have suffered economic distress due to Mother Nature, earthquakes, hurricans, etc. A teacher contacted 2000 Feet, Inc., about a young student who needed a new pair of shoes. The letter the student wrote back thanking 2000 Feet, Inc., for his new shoes was so thankful and appreciative. But his most awsome words were about his desire to give back to others.

There are so many situations where just a little support and kindess can change the life and spirit of a child.

Helping one child feel that he is a great individual and know that there are people, that may be strangers, who do care and want to help.

With the economic conditions, so many organizaitons need funding. 2000 Feet, Inc., is growing and getting their new avenues to raise awareness.

2000 Feet is doing an outstanding work in providing shoes for kids. In addition, the program educates parents on the importance of proper footwear for their children. This is especially during times of poor economics when money is tight to encourage parents to buy new shoes for their kids to ensure their feet grow properly and to improve their self-esteem.

One of the most rewarding experiences is when i see kids shopping (with volunteers help) for their shoes.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The organization needs more board members and volunteers
